Dream 22
(1/19/2022)


I am
walking
down a hallway
carrying
a chair

“it’s evil!”

a woman’s
voice screams
from behind
me

I am
not sure
what to do
with a piece
of malevolent
furniture

I turn
into
an empty
bedroom

open
the sliding
closet door

nothing
in there
either

I set
the chair
inside

back
to the left

I close
the door

hear something
from inside

I open
to see
the back
now toward
the right

I close
the door
again
but open it
right away

I see the
chair suspended
in pieces

realizing
that it is not
merely
flipping around

but totally
disassembling
itself

reassembling
in the other
direction

closing
one last time
I decide
not
to tell
the woman
